Fishing Charters in La Paz

With more than 700 species of fish (and still more to be identified), Jacques Cousteau considered the Sea of Cortez to be the Aquarium of the World. La Paz in Baja California Mexico is perfectly positioned as the gateway to your next sportfishing adventure.

Sport fishing opportunities in La Paz vary by season with the greatest assortment and most desired fish showing up when the waters are warm.

The most popular months are typically April through October, although the shoulder season varies year to year and we’ve had fantastic catches occur outside of those popular months.

Popular sport fishing species for the La Paz fishery include:

Fishing Charter Operators

There are many fishing charters working out of La Paz and Cabo San Lucas. We recommend that if you plan to fish in or near La Paz that you book your charter with a local provider. There’s a lot to be learned off the water about where the action is, what’s biting and how the fish are acting. Local operators benefit from after-hours shoreside talk with their fellow captains…often over a cold cerveza.

We recommend a select few operators here in La Paz. Our recommendations are based on our personal knowledge of the operation and their captains, feedback from the fishing community and reports from our guests about their overall experience.

If sport fishing in La Paz is something you are considering while here, talk to us about the kind of experience you’re looking for. Some people are here for a hardcore, once-in-a-lifetime fishing extravaganza. Other fishers are as interested in the fishing as they are in simply spending time on the water soaking up the sun and exploring areas offshore.

Based on your desires, we’ll put you in touch with the captains that we believe will provide you with the best overall day on the water.

Sunny days and tight lines, everyone!
